How come American hasn't been to EGE these past few days?

I haven’t seen it there for 3 days now.

seasonal pull-down

For how long?

Usually when the ski season starts up around Thanksgiving.

my take is a lack of airplanes - American flies 757’s into EGE almost exclusively. And the 757 airplanes are the ones being taken out of service for the seat rail problems . . .

No, this was scheduled months ago.
